Huawei Mate RS Porsche Design Specifications, Features and Price

Traditionally, Huawei’s Porsche Design phones always comes pricey. Of course, that a symbol of style and class. But that is not the case today. Well, don’t get it twisted as the Huawei Mate RS Porsche Design may be the company’s best phone to date. It’s actually an improved P20 Pro.

The phone features a 6-inch AMOLED QHD display with no notch (18:9). Perhaps the bigger surprise is the under display fingerprint reader. Users can hover their finger over it to wake the phone and touch the screen to unlock it. Have a look around the back – there’s a second fingerprint reader there!

Huawei Porsche Design Mate RS did away with the notch and gets an under display fingerprint reader.

The screen accounts for a couple of the 8 smooth curves that make up the phones body. Yup, in a direct challenge to Samsung, Huawei has crafted a curved AMOLED display. The body (styled by Porsche Design) is built of metal and glass and comes in the traditional black, but also a Red option, which is unfortunately exclusive to China.


The Mate RS borrows the 40MP + 8MP + 20MP triple camera of the P20 Pro with all its magic: 5x hybrid zoom, 960fps video, AI features and all. But now this trio is moved to the center line.

The AI is powered by the Kirin 970 chipset, which is paired with 6GB of RAM. It’s the storage where the RS stands out from its siblings – it comes in two versions, 256GB and 512GB.
